DVD Duplication

DVD-R Duplication - Video or Data

Duplication is carried out by recording your supplied master disc or data to an image file on a hard disc, which is then verified against the original. This image file is then recorded with a laser, or 'burnt', to the final copies which are again verified against the image file. Only the highest quality A-grade discs are used (eg: Taiyo Yuden, Ritek, Sony). Duplication is ideal for short runs (up to 1000-2000 units) where a quick turnaround is needed (48 hours is possible for most jobs) or for larger runs where there is not enough time for DVD-Rom replication. NB: duplicated DVD-Rs can only be guaranteed to play back on DVD-R compatible DVD drives. Although the vast majority of drives are compatible, to avoid this problem altogether DVD-Rom replication is required.
